Vulcan Quasar 40 air issue

Hi,

Our Vulcan Quasar 40 was merrily working until suddenly it started playing up. The first thing I noticed was that the top of the heater was getting hot, and then after a few minutes the entire unit would stop. I assume the unit is stopping due to the thermostat, however what I did notice is that no air is coming out through the air deflectors.

I am guessing it may be blocked or similar so heat is going up into the heater and due to the thermostat is quickly just turning itself off and then on again. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Hi the problem you have is your heater is cutting out due to the over temp switch getting to hot the reason for this is that your fan is not working thus not enough air flow is getting through the heat exchanger to keep it cool
your heater is designed to not exceed a certain temprature so as not to become a fire risk
to solve your problem you will need to replace your fan
this will solves your problem

Pilot on, gas fires up, no fan comes on.


Sounds like you are talking about the indoor fan that circulates air through house. Turn the unit off and make sure the fan rotates freely. Next check the capacitor for the fan. If it looks swollen its probably bad. If it doesn't look swollen then you will need a multimeter to check it with. If that's ok then check the fan relay. Let me know what you find.

Noisy pilot light Vulcan Quasar 40


Simply clean out the jet tube with a fine wire, the sound you hear is the gas blowing by the irregular edges, and swirling and not mixing and producing sound waves, (Bit like a flute) So, you need to clean the tube right out, and smooth off the end again, & sorta "Countersink", Flame the end too, at the end.use a very fine needle file, and make it look like new, that will sort your problem out. Then adjust so you have a good gas flow. Also check out it isn't blocked too.

Vulcan Ilec central heater main burners turn off after few second


Flame rollout sensors, overheat thermistor, air proving switch, bad earthing, blocked flue. Any of these things can cause your problem. If its a permanent pilot, is it clean burning?? If electronic ignition, is the flame rod clean i.e. no carbon or rust etc.. Safest bet is a qualified gasfitter take a look at it.

Vulcan quasar 40 shut down when fan starts up


Replace the fan thermal switch located at the top of the heat exchanger. Unplug the power first as the switch is 240V.

Perhaps the fan motor is bad. If not, you have an electrical problem.
